Easy access from I-57. Nice level pull through sites. Wi fi works great and the service was great. We will use this park any time we are in the area. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Relatively easy to access from I-57. Actually a pleasant drive through the cornfields to reach the park. A nice, quiet park that we would definitely use again if we were in the area again. Owners picked up trash bags and it wasn't necessary to take them to the dumpster.

There is a nice fenced area for dogs to exercise in. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful park off I57. Easy in and off and easy pull through so. Owner really nice. We had to have a part shipped here for our rv and he was really helpful. They have a nice lake for fishing. Great sites. Walking path, dog area. Nothing missing. We would definitely make a point to stop here again. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Upon arrival and quick check in, we were escorted to our site by our host. Our site was level and accommodated our motorhome and toad without unhooking. Our site was surrounded by mature trees, providing shade, but still allowing satellite access from our rooftop mount. There is a small fenced dog area plus lots of open space to walk or run your dog. There is also a nice walking trail around the lake. The only downside for us was that the wifi really only worked well between 6 and 7 am. We did have good AT&T LTE coverage. Traffic noise was noticeable, but muted. It's a very convenient spot for an overnight stop. We had no trouble navigating the access roads. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Lovely park with large shade trees and a pond. There was plenty of space between spaces. The owner escorted us to our space. This would be a great place to park for several weeks. We could only stay two days but would love to return. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Motorhome.

This was an overnight stay for a long trip. It was quiet and we loved the view of the small lake. There is a nice walking trail around the lake. The landscaping is lovely and everything is well groomed. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice quiet park. We had full HUs (50A). There's a lake but we weren't on the lakefront so can't give any details for that. Neat and tidy looking. Would stay here again! We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Small park with nice fishing lake, Cable and wifi were good. Large site paved with gravel. Easy access to Interstate. Interior roads were ok. I had no problem getting in and out of park in a 43 ft motorhome. Nice place to stay for a night or two. Would come again, We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Motorhome.

We have never stayed in this park before but we will again. A very nice small park on a lake near Champaign, Illinois. Very friendly people and owners. Interior roads are adequate for a big rig and the site was long and somewhat spacious. We were in a "premium" site but I couldn't see much difference from the others. Perhaps it was the location as we were on the end of the row. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Motorhome.

We've stayed here on overnight cross country stops at least six times over the last few years. The staff is always very friendly, helpful and professional. The park is kept very clean and it's a very pleasant place. They have a little lake with a walking path around it and several places to just sit and enjoy. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

What a sweet surprise after a long day traveling on rutted/bad freeway systems in KY, OH, and IN. This a beautiful, peaceful park. Ahhhh. Check in was fun and friendly. It's right off the freeway, but the noise is minimal. Did I mention the owners (son, Dad) are very friendly? What a great surprise. The interior roads are nice, firm, small diameter gravel, easy to walk on. Sites are big! Lots of trees, but none encumber your big rig. WiFi is excellent. Lots of grass and wait, what? a lake too? Yes, and it's very pretty (no swimming allowed). This is a very peaceful park. The bathrooms are northwoods style, very clean. We were led to our huge site (11A) which is always nice to get oriented in a new park. We've already walked the parameter and around the lake. We're sorry we're only staying one night. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Quiet stopover along I-57. Mix of asphalt and gravel access roads with potholes requiring some degree of careful maneuvering for larger rigs (the turn just before the office and the u-turn at the exit to return to I-57). A few pull thrus but mostly backins. Sites are gravel with grass intruding and mostly level. Lots of trees and large areas of grass around the campground with a small lake. Far enough from the highway to avoid traffic noise. Power ok, did not use other utilities. Wifi good signal strength but very erratic speeds - from pretty quick to sluggish and back in the space of a few minutes. Strong Verizon LTE (4 to 5 bars) with good speed. Moderate TMobile LTE (2-3 bars), did not check speed. No recycling on site. We would stay here again for an overnight along I-57. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very friendly staff. Directed to site. Turns into sites can be tight but can be made. Close to Interstate but no noise! Beautiful view of lake with benches for relaxing after a day's travel. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a great overnighter park (close to interstates) and we've stayed here several times before. The hosts are always friendly and welcoming. We usually don't unhook since we're heading home & want an early start out the next day, but there are plenty of sites to accommodate that. Nice hiking around the lake (which is really a great big ol' pond in our world!) and lots of shade trees in the sites near the water. There's also open non-shaded areas available too for less $, but we enjoy relaxing one more night on the road in the shade & watching the wildlife near the pond. Sites are a little too close together and they do allow fires, so smoke could be an issue near the water. We had neighbors with bad wood in the fire pit, massive smoke & no common sense. In this environment, could be a problem for some. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
